Splendour XR RELIVE is your chance to, well, relive all the sets again

Congratulations to Tones and I singer Toni Watson, who got engaged to her two-year-old partner, Jimmy Bedford.

The singer – who gained international fame after releasing her breakout single "Dance Monkey" in 2019 – took to Instagram yesterday to share the happy news.

Watson posted a photo of her and her boyfriend kissing while showing a large ring on her hand. She simply added a diamond ring emoji to the photo. Bedford posted the same picture but titled the photo, "2021 has been a tough year for everyone, but I ended mine with a yes, I can't wait for my best friend to be my wife."

Watson is very private about their relationship and rarely mentions them in interviews. In July, however, the singer told The Kyle and Jackie O Show that she and Bedford had been together for 18 months at the time.

“I've actually been with my partner for a year and a half. It's going so well. He's just the perfect person for me, ”she said.

“He was a brickworker [bricklayer] and now he's my stage technician. For the past year and a half he has gone to university, studied, and got his bachelor's degree.

“He's going on tour with me as a stage technician. He lives with us. He plays footy for Frankston Bombers. He's my best friend, he's hilarious, ”she added.

Tones and I are currently touring the east coast of Australia playing a number of street music shows. The next week of busking shows includes stops in St Kilda, Geelong, Albury, Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle, Coffs Harbor and Byron Bay. Watson is posting the news of new dates on Instagram but plans to visit Burleigh Heads, Lower Beechmont, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Airlie Beach, Townsville, Cairns, Hobart, Perth and Adelaide during the tour.
